Tim Miller says area being searched by Leonard Padilla was previously scanned with sonar and cleared by TES
Leonard Padilla continues to search in the Little Econ River in Blanchard Park. The divers he hired will work through the afternoon combing the football field sized area. So far, nothing has been found, and he says whether they find Caylee or not a memorial service will take place tomorrow.
Tim Miller and Equusearch are finishing up their search today in the Lee Vista area. Tim said they have cleared the areas of interest given to them by LE, and he has to move on to other families with missing children. He said that the search would continue–just on a smaller scale. “This search is far from over.” he stated. There are approximately 68 TES members in the Orlando area, and they will continue to search for Caylee on weekends.
Then, Tim said something I found very disheartening. He said the river Leonard Padilla is searching has already been scanned by him PERSONALLY with side scan sonar–equipment that he is very good with. “I know there is nothing in the water.” Tim said flatly. “If somebody wants to do something to put on a show, My God we’re not involved in it.”
He went on to say there are many people searching for Caylee for many reasons–a lot of them self-serving. He said “I would only hope that the other search is for the right reasons and not just media attention. I hope they have the right motives. This is not a circus”
If what Tim says is true, and there’s no reason to think it isn’t, Leonard Padilla must be aware that the area was scanned. He either doesn’t trust the equipment, or he’s doing exactly what Tim is suggesting–pulling a publicity stunt. I still think Leonard’s heart is in the right place. I hope that’s not just my naivety showing.
